From: Alan D Corre
Subject: NEW WEBSITE: Lingua Franca

I am pleased to announce the fourth edition of the Lingua Franca website.
Lingua Franca was a trade language which existed around the mediterranean
for centuries, and disappeared around 1900. Significant items were
extracted from Tunisian Judeo-Arabic sources, and the language was widely
used by Jews.

The fourth edition includes various corrections and new items:

* Transcript of a lecture by Prof. Roberto Rossetti on LF with valuable
bibliographical appendices.

* An acrobat version of the main glossary which produces an excellent
printable text.

* A set of discussions on LF with participants all over the world.
